Anthropocene

From earliest human records, and across many cultures, Nature has been embodied as Goddess. The Ancient Greeks gave every tree and forest, every sea and river a female deity for protection. This mythology is embedded in Western civilization, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.  The Anthropocene series imagine anachronistic nature deities as proxies for the bio-systems they traditionally protected. Gestures of theatrical anguish embody anxieties triggered by the climate crisis, and subvert classical traditions of idealized female nudes in Arcadian settings. Molecular symbols reveal invisible toxins permeating 21st Century landscapes, and acknowledge the science behind environmental degradation.
